An IDA individual membership is the perfect gift to connect a friend, family member, or colleague with the latest information on dyslexia and reading instruction. It’s a gift that keeps on giving: membership includes one year of access to publications full of research and best practices, discounts on merchandise and events, newsletters, affiliation with one of  IDA’s 44 branches, and more. 

A gifted membership will make them an essential part of IDA’s international community of individuals who are committed to bringing effective instruction to every child, in every classroom, until everyone can read. 

With memberships starting at just $50, this makes a great gift for parents and grandparents of individuals with dyslexia, or for your child’s teacher or tutor!
